HOW TO LIVE YOUR PAST

Before i go fully into the topic before me... I'll like to start with this piece of quote as usual:

"Past when not properly managed/lived pulls the future in part".

For  a clearer view of today's topic, i will be using a story in the scripture with references to each verses as i am led.


I Samuel 12.
David miserably failed as a husband and friend when he impregnated the wife of Uriah one of his choice mighty men. After sending the husband to the front line of a  battle where he was slain, David married the woman, attempting to cover up his adulterous affair (v9).


Nugget 1: when you fail to manage/live the past, you continue covering error with errors.
Eventually the Prophet Nathan pronounced a death sentence and some pay backs upon the household of David, calling it 'sword' (v10-12).
Thus, Stop covering that error anymore. Stop covering lies with lies.


Nugget 2: To every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. 
Every action of ours are seeds sown that must yield fruits. The truth is friends we'll reap what we have sown into our times called past. so live NOW wisely!!
David acknowledged his sins before God in the presence of Nathan and his death sentence was lifted.
You too can lift that burden off you. You can lift off the punishment of you past actions - if only you will change your ways.


Nugget 3: David could keep it a secret and die, but he spoke it out before the prophet.
You see that?
I have told you earlier; Your secrets are revelations of how not to do it again. Take a stand today - let him show you His covenant. Davis saw His covenant because He told the Prophet the secret.This is a dimension  of  'The covenant of Life'... praise God!!

Proverbs 28:13King James Version (KJV)
13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Acknowledging the past will not take the 'pay-back', it won't because life is a process. The child died!! David spent seven days fasting on his face in the dust in intercession before God, hoping God would reverse the decision and bring life to the infant. At the conclusion of the week, David was informed the child had died.

Permit me ask this; what would have been your reaction after spending about 168 hours alone with God with just one petition on your mind and everything failed still pointing at that error i mean referring you to the past still just like David? (verse12-19).

Nugget 4: We live the past. Either we like it or not we pay for our ordeals. It's a process we must endure to enjoy. 
Instead of blaming God, cursing Him for not being good, and questioning how God could take an infant when it was the sin of its father and not the sin of the child that angered the lord, David's reaction surprised even his closest friends. He arose from the dust, washed himself and went into the house of the Lord and worshiped. (verses20-21)

Nugget 5: Learn not to dwell on the past. Your struggles and efforts cannot change the past nor make it any better only God can! In the process of newness, let the Lord take whatever He wants to take away, let Him kill within you/ empty you of all HE needs to do. Do remember when it doesnt happen your own ways God has your best interest at heart. "I wish above all things that thou prospereth............." IIIJohn1:2 KJV.

For brevity.... laughing out Loud' verse 24 said " and David comforted Bathsheba his wife, and went in unto her; and she bare a son, and he called his name Solomon; and the Lord loved him."
David managed his past(verses22-23) and he avoided bis future in part! 

When you comfort yourself and follow the due process of healing, you have a Solomon for every dead child.

My prayers and wish is that after you read through this, you will be graced to birth a Solomon out of your past.

Enjoy!!

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

The Demeanor of Joh…

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.

This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.
